Used to be a great place for a light lunch. Today's lunch was well below the quality that we were expecting. I think what was most disturbing is that our server came by and asked how our meal was. Our response was "terrible". At the point the server made a quick exit never be seen again. There is little chance... More

I somehow always want to go to the Raintree on my birthday - it's a great little place to go as a couple or with a small group. The plaza it's in isn't the nicest, but the restaurant itself is beautifully decorated. The food never disappoints - get the home made iced tea, Venus dip, and soups! This is one... More

Two of us had lunch. There were three tables in the restaurant when we arrived and one more came in after us. The service was painfully slow. I ordered a special tea and twice sent it back as I was given regular tea. We ordered two cups of soup and two meals. Our soup took so long in arriving we... More

Just loved this restaurant, great food, service and the fact that it wasn't a cookie cutter, same old same old little restaurant. Great select of food for everyone, vegan and gluten free options as well. I would recommend giving them a try!

Tried the pasta which was served hot and tasted nice. It was fresh and I enjoyed my meal. Will always come here for Italian food and recommended the place to many people I know

This place used to be a gem, however new owners have really let this place down. From poor decore, to cheap food all the way to bad service. It wont be long before this place closes its doors as customer service is last at this location.

I went with a group of friends. We hardly ever get to go out together without the kids and we chose this place because of the gluten free options and they were open later in the evening (supposedly they were open until 10 pm), so we could go after getting the little ones in bed. I ordered the venus dip,... More

I love to go to the Raintree for lunch. Their food is always good, very reasonably priced, and nicely presented. The atmosphere is pleasant and you can watch them prepare your food. The service can sometimes be a little slow, but their wait staff seems to work there for a long time, so the management must be good! Curries are... More

My daughter and I enjoyed a delightful lunch at this place. The food was good. The service was okay, though the server seemed a bit artificially friendly. Tables are small and felt slightly grungy. It is not the cheapest place to have lunch. I will come here again because my daughter likes the place.
